      Ophthalmic OCT Reaches $1 Billion Per Year: But reimbursement clampdown clouds future innovation.
      Long gone are the days when a new medical product could be easily introduced based solely on improved patient outcomes. To optimize the probability of success, a new product now needs to demonstrate that it can both improve patient outcomes and reduce costs. To the clinical practice manager, an attractive product will need to recoup its cost in the near term and generate revenues in a predictable and easily quantifiable ...

      Ultrahigh speed 1050nm swept source / Fourier domain OCT retinal and anterior segment imaging at 100,000 to 400,000 axial scans per second
      We demonstrate ultrahigh speed swept source/Fourier domain ophthalmic OCT imaging using a short cavity swept laser at 100,000 - 400,000 axial scan rates. Several design configurations illustrate tradeoffs in imaging speed, sensitivity, axial resolution, and imaging depth. Variable rate A/D optical clocking is used to acquire linear-in-k OCT fringe data at 100kHz axial scan rate with 5.3um axial resolution in tissue. Fixed rate sampling at 1 ...
